Timeline Dream Type
A timeline dream presents a sequence of events or elements from a portion of your life, beginning at a certain point in your life and ending at a later point. A timeline dream usually portrays a series of events from the past, but can also include current and future events or situations. The events or elements in your dream may be unfamiliar (not literal) but they represent actual circumstances in your life. A timeline dream usually also functions as a Clarification Dream, so pay attention to the details.
You dream that as you walk across a neighbor's deck someone hands you a large piece of paper, then you walk back to your house and the mailman hands you a letter that says you've won the lottery, and then you are in a large parking lot and someone hands you the keys to one of the cars.
This dream could represent the portion of your life when you graduated college, got a job, and bought a car. (Most likely there will be detailed elements in this dream that will help you clarify thoughts and/or feelings from that portion of your life.)
You dream that you're sitting in your backyard when a group of birds lands in the yard and stay a while, then you are in a boat on a river that pulls into shore, then you walk up the street into the nearby city and notice a bank, and you think about going in to see what kind of money they have.
This dream could represent the portion of your life when your relatives came to visit, then you changed to a job with benefits that required you to make a decision about stock options. (Again, there are most likely some detailed elements in this dream that will help you clarify thoughts and/or feelings from that portion of your life.)
